As it became known yesterday, WADA President Craig Reedie back in May in a personal conversation with prankers acknowledged that the agency has no evidence of the guilt of the Russian athletes, in addition to the testimony of ex-director of the “Anti-Doping Center” G.M. Rodchenkov. That is, all the charges against them are not more than a “democratic verdict” without charge or trial. Name of one with hands up to the elbow in the urine, – Soviet and Russian chemist Gregory Rodchenkov – was little-known until September 2015, even in Wikipedia. But now it is, for sure, will go down in the history of Russia, namely to the list of traitors. Rodchenkov not only slandered the Russian sport, without providing any evidence, but spoiled the reputation and broke career to many athletes, who for years faithfully went to the Olympics in Rio.
What went to the scientist’s head so that he suddenly ran across the United States and started to discredit all Russian sports from there? Unfortunately, to answer this question, I had to roll up the sleeves and dig into Rodchenkov’s dirty linen and analyzes. And I even felt like the specialist in anti-doping center.
So, fast forward to the distant 2011, before the London or Sochi Olympics, where the Russian team allegedly took forbidden chemistry. On February 28, Grigory Mikhailovich Rodchenko, the head of the Anti-Doping Centre, enters the Sklifosovsky Clinic with stab wound of the left side of the chest, which he struck himself in a suicidal impulse. And here is the document that kindly provides us with the opportunity to learn not only the composition of the patient’s urine, but his blood, and general psychological diagnosis.
But suicide on the basis of a deep depression does not arise out of nothing, so let’s wind off the counter for another couple of weeks ago. At this time, we are not transferred to the hospital but to the Investigation Committee. On February 12, 2011 in respect of Marina M. Rodchenkova, sister of our “patient” was a criminal case for illegal possession and sale of drugs.
As part of the case it was found that the drugs were supplied by defendant’s brother, who took out illegal drugs, using official position. Thanks to the work of Gregory in the anti-doping center, family drug business bloomed and smelled. Caught not only in the marketing and storage of drugs but also in excess of powers, Gregory has literally made a mess in pants but not to the bottle for doping, but in a much larger size. From here comes the suicide attempt. Later, the case against Gregory was discontinued. Fortunately for him, the country has made an advance, hoping to attract an experienced specialist for the Games in Sochi.But unfortunately for all Russian athletes who got their butts handed to because of the banal drug dealer, who covered under the major post over last years.
